BTW, do you have a link to the Teraflex Leveling Kit you used with the pucks?
You have to do it on www.discounttiresdirect.com. Even before the rebates it was only 1550. I applied for their credit card for an additional rebate of like $60.00 They are delivered free, all assembled ready to bolt on.

The leveling kit I bought off of eBay. Just search it and you will find it easily.

I just called Discount Tire Direct & got quoted a price of $1,780, which included all 5 tires & rims, $25 per tire for a warranty for potholes, nails, etc., $38 per tire for the sensors & my $50 credit for being a member here. He said that they only have 2 different $60 rebates right now, so it would still be $1,660 after rebates Wish I could get the deal Sofla got

Another question....I'm trying to price them online & found the rims, but can't find the Duratracs....what is the actual size I'm looking for when converting the 33's over?

Sofla, sorry for asking so many questions, but I'm really confused at how you got them so cheap. Did you get new sensors with them? What about the certificate warranty? I want the price you got

Cobra 75W is mounted and working. Couldn't convince the wife to let me spend $85 on the antenna license plate. So I did the next best thing.

My jeep is an 07, so no sensors and I didn't add the $25 per tire warranty. Like I also said, last weekend only, they had additional rebates. If u remove the sensors and warranty it will probably be very close. I think I had a total of $320 in (4)rebates. I may have said $360 before.

Great thinking- the kind that grew this country. What did you use for the bracket and what kind of screws to screw it to the back of the license plate holder? Thanks for sharing.

From what I've heard, the strike threat is really only in Louisville. As far as I understand, the new contract is good enough for everybody else.

Just spoke to family in Louisville that work for them. It will most likely not go to strike because Amazon has said they will go to another delivery service if the strike happens. They will not be willing to loose that much over increased insurance cost.

You can get nice little mounts for under $20, and honestly even that is too much. But if you don't want to do the work, its fair.

You can make one yourself with a vise, a drill, and a little muscle for a buck or few.

Thanks again Sofla.....yep, that's where I'm seeing the difference then with the sensors & warranty. I don't suppose I need the warranty on them, but wish they had that much in rebates now! Dang, I'm always late for the good deals

From our UPS driver near Pittsburgh, the important guys(or so they think) that sit in the big offices are trying to do away with health benefits for the little guys. But that was one driver so who knows.

We purchased tires from Discount online in November. Bought them with a warranty, although we normally don't buy any extra warranties on ANYTHING.

Fast forward to May and the first time Mike let me wheel his jeep in the sugar sand... Yup! You guessed it! Don't ask me how, but I managed to puncture the SIDEWALL!!!

This was on a Sunday. He called Discount first thing Monday morning and we had a brand new tire, completely free of charge, delivered on Thursday.

That one new tire warranty claim made the entire warranty purchase worth it. With what you pay for bigger tires, one freebie makes it all worth while!

Yep, I was hoping I could make it this summer before I HAD to buy something else, but that may not happen.

I just feel like the factory soft top still holds on too much heat, even without the windows in.
